1860's Jacket in Black Lace

From the seller:

A stunning 1860’s black Chantilly lace jacket that has been de-accessioned from a museum collection. The cataloging tag is stitched inside the collar.. The lace is laid over a lining of burgundy silk moirĂ© fabric. The lace has a stylized floral pattern. The lace on the sleeves is designed in the pagoda style. The burgundy under sleeve is tight fitting. The front and back necklines are trimmed with black velvet ribbon bows and long streamers. The jacket has a front hook and eye closure. It is in very good condition. There are no holes in the lace and silk fabrics. There is no underarm discoloration. Antique clothing should not be worn. Bust 34 ½ loose fitting waist 38.

From Me:

Now this is totally what I would wear during the 1860's. This is probably about 1867 so too late for the Civil War Ladies.
